The ‘Silver Arrows’ name is synonymous with success. Mercedes-Benz still uses the term today, but the story really began in the 1930s. The German press initially dubbed the dominant Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union Grand Prix racing cars between 1934 and 1939 as the ‘Silver Arrows’ for two main reasons: Firstly, because of their speed and streamlining; and secondly because in order save weight, both manufacturers stripped the paint off the bodywork – revealing the silver aluminum underneath.
This poster depicts the Mercedes-Benz ‘Streamliners’ – the W25 and W125 – which took part in the 1937 Avus-Rennen race, and is printed on high quality paper to reflect the feel of the time.
